Early morning police raids across Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Stafford have seen seven people arrested as part of Operation Ceramic’, a large scale investigation into the supply of Class A drugs by organised crime groups across the North West and Midlands.

All have been taken to custody for questioning.

Detective Inspector Phil Kennedy, of GMPs Serious and Organised Crime Group said: “We’ve had a fantastic result this morning. These warrants have been executed following a meticulous investigation incorporating months of hard work by ourselves and our partner agencies to begin to break apart these organised crime groups that bring misery to our local communities.

“This investigation shows the dedication we have to cracking down on drug related activity and to anyone who is involved in this type of crime, we will catch up with you and you will be brought to justice.

“Drugs blight communities and we’re committed to ensuring those responsible for the movement of drugs are identified.

“Although we have made these arrests our investigation continues and I would encourage anyone who has information on the supply of drugs, or anyone who has witnessed suspicious behaviour in their communities to please get in touch with police.”
